Following the unveiling of Senate Republican leadership health care legislation last week, a number of conservative and moderate members either rejected the proposal or was not sure of support.
U.S. Senator and physician Rand Paul said, “The current bill does not repeal Obamacare. It does not keep our promises to the American people. I will oppose it coming to the floor in its current form, but I remain open to negotiations.”
This week he sent a letter to President Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and other Senate leaders laying out four policy improvements for the Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017.

The letter covered expanding association health plans, rejecting taxpayer bailouts for insurance companies, reconsidering the nature of the tax credits, and removing the 6-month waiting period for those who have a lapse of 63 days or more in their insurance coverage.
